Tasting Notes

2016 is the first vintage of this 100% Syrah, and what an exciting wine it is! It's kept on its skins in amphorae for six months, followed by a further five months maturation in old oak. The lack of overt new oak allows the pure and transparent quality of the fruit to shine much more, and personally I love this new direction - it's a beautifully poised Syrah with typical violet and smoky bacon aromas and ripe, fragrant fruit with heady, creamy spice...and much more. It's elegant and smooth, with fine-textured tannins and a bright, lively, vivacious palate. A delightful wine, and the rising star of the tasting.

TASTING NOTES

Few vintages have expressed all the virtues of the Tuscan coast’s climate as eloquently as 2016. An almost perfect combination of sunshine, warm summer days and cool nights, with just about enough rain to slow down the vine’s growth without making them suffer from drought have led to one of the purest expressions of Le Volte dell’Ornellaia, combining perfectly ripe...
